PREFACE 

THIS bibliographical list of the works of Bruce 
Rogers is an extension of the one compiled by Fred- 
eric Warde in Bruce Rogers , Designer of Books. I have 
endeavored to record all the works omitted from Mr. 
Wardens list and I have recorded all those that have 
appeared subsequently. I have, however, omitted pro- 
spectuses, although many of them are original pieces 
of B.R.ana differing entirely from the books they ad- 
vertise. The difficulty of listing these pieces compre- 
hensively has persuaded me to omit them. 

The project was suggested by Mr. Philip C. Du- 
schnes, who has, throughout the entire period of its 
compilation, been an invaluable aid. I wish to take 
the opportunity here to express my gratitude for his 
suggestions and supervision. 

I am indebted to the R. R. Bowker Company for 
permission to reprint as part of this book the check- 
list compiled by Miss Alice Lerch, and published in 
Private Presses & Their Books by Will Ransom. To this 
list, which recorded Rogers items that appeared from 
1925 to 1928, I have added several items between 
these dates, and have tried to give more detailed bib- 
liographical information about each item. 

I have consulted the collections of the Grolier Club, 
the Newark Public Library, the New York Public 
Library, Columbia University Librar)'-, Mr. Alfred A. 
Knopf and Mr. Philip C. Duschnes. 

I have received individual aid from Mr. William 



M. Hepburn, Librarianof Purdue University Library, 
Mr. C. Howard Roberts of the Riverside Press, Mr. 
David T. Pottinger of the Harvard University Press, 
Mr. James Hendrickson of the Watch Hill Press, 
Mr. Melvin Loos of the Columbia University Press, 
Mr. John Winterich and Dr. Jackson Davis. To all 
these individuals and institutions I express my thanks.

A LETTER OF INTRODUCTION 



DEAR BRUCE ROGERS: On behalf of the Bibliog- 
rapher, the Publisher and the future owners and annotators 
of this book, I want to attempt to give you some idea of why 
it has been issued. And that will be difficult, because you are 
not as interested as we are in the past work of Bruce Rogers, or 
of any other designer of typography. It disconcerts you (^Iknow^ 
to suspect that the hunt for ' 'items'' of yours has become too 
minute, too uncritical; that your collectors can show you as 
priced possessions scraps that you have either forgotten, or 
would wish to forget; and that this indiscriminate frenzy of 
acquisitiveness stands in quaint contrast to your own method 
of work — which seems to be that of trying all things and pass- 
ing for press only that which is good. We will grant you all 
that. There have been, let us say, too many articles about you, 
and there will be too many more. We have been guilty of calling 
you inimitable, instead of trying to imitate your extraordi- 
nary ability to remain unimpressed with anything that is not 
genuinely impressive. 

And yet, if all that is true, and if this book will in fact 
pour kerosene on the already blading altars of the Rogers 
Cult, there are nevertheless a number of reasons why we 



should act as we do. Let me give you an analogy which is 
closer than you realise: that of the man who is suddenly con- 
fronted with a gem or sculpture or vase from ancient Athens, 
He could call it an object of beauty and let it go at that, 
hut what teases his mind is a quality far more baling than 
beauty, the mere satisfaction of the eyes. He has as yet no 
name for that quality, but as he discovers it again and again 
— in a temple, in an ode, in a poor fragment of painted clay 
— he begins to associate it with the greatest mystery of the 
visible world, the fact that living things grow serenely in 
patterns whereas dead things can only be constructed fretfully 
according to plans. He finds that once there was a time when 
artists were able, for a few generations , to make stone and 
clay and words act with the inexorable rightness of living 
protoplasm. Can you ask him, at that moment, to imitate the 
artists themselves and say ^'nothing in excess" .^ To be as 
casual about the miracle as they were, to pick and choose and 
reject? No: as soon expect a man to breathe normally when 
he comes out of a stuffy house into a May-morning garden. 
It is not fragrance, but fragrant freshness, that pulls at the 
lungs. The lover of Polia pursues her down any dusty corri- 
dor where she has left a random trace; to the Greeks (and to 
you, my dear B. R. ) that man may seem a ^alot or a pedant. 
But he is only a human being, responding to that least human 
and most magnetic quality in art or nature, the quality of 
freshness, " livingness. " 



Now I have watched you at work; I have seen you appar- 
ently fumbling your way by trial-and-error through the 
labyrinth of technical detail that goes to book production. I 
have seen rejected trial-pages pile up until I would have sworn 
that the original inspiration had been worried to death. And 
with that experience J and with my own knowledge of print- 
ing technique^ I must still admit that the finished thing 
ba^es me by looking not at all as if it had been artificially 
constructed^ and very much as if it had grown; as if it had 
been possible for metal type and printing ink and paper to be so 
permeated with life that a decoration could actually open up 
like a blossom and a page shoot up like a living tree. 1 know 
in some detail how (and with what pains) you get those effects, 
and yet there is no satisfactory mechanistic explanation of 
that feeling of refreshment , of perfectly unreasonable delight j 
which seems to he universal in your work. 

Now do you see why people will want this book? Do you 
see why we are so willing to leave to posterity the task of 
criticizing your achievement, why we simply stretch out ac- 
quisitive hands and collect? Why we defy Blake's warning 
and take to ourselves that "joy'' that only people like you, 
who live "in Eternity s sunrise," can look upon without 
emotion? Can you realise, in that curious serenity of yours, 
what the rest of us feel like when we come across such serenity 
on the printed page? Have you seen a homesick man opening 
a parcel from his native land and handling the very straw 



3 



and wrapping of UP It is something very near to homesick- 
ness that you arouse in us. In this age oj utter disintegration, 
v^e are homesick Jor that lost land from which you seem to 
come. It is not enough for us that you should bring us certain 
matchless hooks. We must hunt up your trivia, your ephe- 
mera, your little jocosities, because we happen to be starving 
for the particular quality they all contain. There is only 
that word 'freshness" to apply to it — unless one called it 
arbitrarily the ''spirit of pagan Greece." Do not expect us 
to be casual about the discovery that you can endow a printed 
page with all those equalities of our lost paradise : ease, mer- 
riment, striding tranquillity. It would indeed be a golden 
age in which we could take such things for granted I 

I think it was a very good thing for you that you made 
those frequent stays in England during the past seven years. 
There was a time, in the middle twenties, when some of us 
thought you were in danger of letting all your forces trickle 
away into mere typographic facetiousness; too many people 
were willing to be amused by what you alone could do with 
type ornaments and decorative conceits. But if we worried 
about you, we misunderstood the one most extraordinary fact 
about you, namely that you are not quite human in your 
ability to keep just beyond the corrupting touch of the world. 
You were doing those trifles for your own genuine amuse- 
ment, and only secondarily because there was some clamor 
for them, particularly in America. But there was no ques- 



tion of your having to "sober down" to produce that most 
Homeric volume of Lawrence's Odyssey. And as for the 
cutting of Centaur type, where your try-and-try-again method 
should have driven everyone concerned wild with impatience 
— well, there is a craftsman at Redhill in Surrey who spoke 
of you with veneration this year as "the man who knew what 
he wanted. " The man who knows that has never bothered to 
know what his public wanted; he has had no need to ask. 

If you had once forced your own hand to please the indis- 
criminate, you could not have risen to the slow creation of 
that supreme example of "fine printing'' of our age — per- 
haps of any age — the Oxford Lectern Bible. But it is so 
difficult for us to believe that any man, today, can be so 
curiously invulnerable as you are. We are used to talking 
about the Conquest of the Air, the Control of Natural 
Forces; we are very busy making things happen a little faster 
than life, and it seems odd to us that you should be incapa- 
ble of being hurried, or subtly bribed, or in any way im- 
pressed by this twentieth century of ours. We make you 
prove over and over that you are really incorruptible, really 
your own master in a world of lackeys regnant; surely in 
this trial page or that half-forgotten early piece you will be- 
tray yourself to us, with some little gesture of false senti- 
ment? Not here . . . not there . . . but surely somewhere 
you have faltered as human beings do, when they notice that 
they are being closely watched and too quickly applauded.^ In 



your very earliest work, could there have been no fault of 
solemnity and self-conscious complacency — then, when you 
had not yet taught us that ''fine printing' could have a sweet 
levity and merry matter-off^actness in it? You were, I be- 
lieve, the first famous practising typographer in the modern 
sense of the word — the man who is not the master printer 
nor the decorator per se, hut the responsible conductor of the 
whole technical orchestra. . . . I believe you were the first 
one to take the composing machine seriously; how did you 
escape mere machine-worship? 

With the perversity of the true devotee we turn from the 
Apollo to the SilenuSjfrom the Centaur and your enchant- 
ing latest work for the Oxford University Press to the period 
when you were actually doing the younger designers more 
harm than good by making them imagine that anyone, beside 
yourself, could go in for typographic humor without becoming 
tedious. And from Silenus we search on to the little pieces which 
are not books, not even pamphlets. Surely in that midden you 
will at least once show a little esthetic vulgarity or in some way 
botch a job of design? I think it is a hopeless search, or rather 
the war of a meaner hope upon a higher one. But remember: in 
the case of a lesser artist, we might have been afraid to look. 
But I have been talking over your shoulder to the man or 
>man who will some day pick up this book idly on a friend's 
table and ask. What is all this about typography, Who is Bruce 
Rogers, What is he, that so many intelligent people in so many 



countries should have to know so much about him? Those ques- 
tions can he answered, not hy any of the monographs or 
articles about you; but by looking at what you have done. 
Everyone else will understand , sooner or later, everyone but 
you: and you will not be greatly concerned about it. There 
are sailing ships in far harbors, there is work that only you can 
do. We have not done you the least harm by all this idolatry, 
your work still has the May-morning freshness. Humor us, 
then, a little, let us try to lioni^you;you can always get away. 
You will always get away. These Athenians always do. That 
is why we pursue them. 

Yours devoutly, 

Beatrice Warde 



NOTE 

WHEN I first learned the scope of Mr. Haas' self- 
imposed undertaking I deprecated his digging up my 
earliest efforts at design for printing — they are with- 
out special merit and, being in most instances merely 
decorative drawings, can hardly deserve a place in a 
bibliographical list. 

But bibliographers will be bibliographers, (and even, 
on occasion, iconographers,) and Mr. Haas contends 
that bibliography, being a scientific pursuit, takes no 
account of the quality, good or bad, of the items listed, 
but is concerned only with their existence, their di- 
mensions and their rarity. As to the rarity of these 
amateurish efforts I can only say that the scarcer they 
are, the better for all concerned. 

Others of my well-meaning (but in this instance 
I think misguided) friends also insist that the only 
perfect bibliography is a complete bibliography, and 
that its points of excellence diminish in the ratio of 
two to one for every item omitted. On this basis the 
bibliography of my work is still far from perfection, 
though this supplement which Mr. Haas has so 
painstakingly compiled will serve to boost it a good 
many points towards that ideal. I am still regretful 
that it cannot somehow automatically boost the qual- 
ity of the works themselves, to make them more 
worthy of the labor expended by Mr. Haas and his 
predecessors in recording them.
